Pre-Analytical Services Assistant (Former Employee) – Marietta, GA – May 7, 2018
A typical day at work was working in the lab verifying the correct number of shipments and number of samples
I've learned how to work as a team and communicate effectively. The hardest part of the job was dealing with some of the coworkers not showing up some days to work creating double work to take on a challenge.
The most enjoyable part of the job was when we succeeded with getting the majority of tasks done, to meet the deadline and enjoying times with coworkers when we had pizza party gatherings for our accomplishments

Low morale and management doesn't seem to care. Health insurance is through the roof and 20% of my salary goes to health care. Extremely "top heavy". Favoritism among management is through the roof and makes for a very unfair work environment. If you want to work for this company, plan on being a butt-kisser if you want to succeed.

Started as a Mom and Pop business and was like family. New CEO came along and in time went global. Below average performers would be rewarded with less work and was picked up by already busy good performers. Promoted people who'd "been there a long time" rather than people who could be better qualified.
Project Manager (Current Employee) – United States – February 25, 2018
Multiple disciplines where inefficient managers have been given the chance to lead. Problem is that there is no way to have checks and balances on these managers. A once a year survey is all employees are given. Each department should have the ability to give feedback on a quarterly basis or at least semi annually to rate their managers on performance to the director. And be able to do this anonymously. Employees do not leave companies, they leave managers.
Also technology that allows employees to do their job more efficiently is lacking and always about 10 years behind. Realize that it is difficult to roll out updates on a global scale, but really need a better solutions package for technology and IT.
Great CEO with a great vision.
All project managers are overworked and live in a reactive environment rather than a proactive one.
A stressful workplace with no opportunity for advancement.
Assistant Scientist (Current Employee) – Ithaca, NY – January 27, 2018
There is no such thing as a typical day or consistency at Q2 Solutions. You walk in there door each day knowing that your expected work for the day will likely change. The company rewards mediocrity with less work, and burdens the quality workers with the more difficult work. There are no chances of being promoted. Although it is a great place to gain some entry-level laboratory experience, there's no room for growth. Management focuses on production/results more than anything at the expense of their employees well-being. It is obvious that the company does not care about turn-over or the safety of the employees working in the labs.
Two weeks paid vacation
management, heavy workload, low salary, worker safety
Anatomic Pathology Associate (Current Employee) – Valencia, CA – December 27, 2017
A typical day consists of employees going through the daily routine of receiving, storing, and shipping samples. The management shows clear signs of favoritism, treating some employees with respect while leaving other hard working employees feeling left behind with no room for advancement.

Two weeks paid vacation, great line managers, nice location
Terrible health care, no job advancement, heavy work load, low salaries
Senior Client Liaison Manager, Alliance Management (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – May 3, 2017
like working with the employees in our office. We used to have a lot of team building activities. Unfortunately, this has lessened in the past year. Too many quick paced changes. This does not allow people to understand the changes and how they apply to them.
I like the people I work with and the immediate managers, they are respectful folks.
Specimen Management Assistant (Current Employee) – Marietta, GA – April 28, 2017
Fast passe, but relaxed environment,everyone seem to know what they are doing and even those who might have questions, they are answered ether by a coordinator or a manager.What I I have mostly observed is that the managers are respectful as long as you do your job. Never seen any case of talked down or someone standing on your neck for you to get things done because your metrics will be proof of your productivity of the day.Liked it. Fun place to work.I will encourage anyone to work here if need be.
sometime free lunch; chick-fila
Split breaks. 15 and 15, then 30 for lunch, is something we are getting used to, befor you went to break at your own time base on the load of work for the day.
